Workout with the Jabra Elite Active 75t

Built for an active lifestyle

Published

on

Every brand seems to have added a true wireless earbud on their portfolio now. Jabra’s been in the game for a while and their latest — the Jabra Elite Active 75t — is a notable improvement.

Better than its predecessor

As new products should be, the 75t is better than the 65t in a number of ways. First, it’s 22 percent smaller, making it even easier to carry around and fit in your ear. Second, there’s a significant 89 percent increase in battery life. It can now last up to 28 hours with the charging case — which is charged via USB-C.

Living up even more to its active lifestyle branding, its IP rating has gone up from IP56 to IP57. Jabra claims it’s now waterproof.

Isolate the noise

While noise cancellation seems to be all the rage these days, Jabra has another thing in mind. The 75t is equipped with noise isolation tech. It promises a better sound experience through passive noise reduction.

It’s a product of four generations of the Jabra Elite Active line along with thousands of ear measurements and scans for the optimal earbud shape.

Jabra MyControls and Jabra MySound

Coming in the second quarter of 2020 are two software features that will give Jabra users more convenience and control.

First up is the Jabra MyControls. This gives the user the option to use just one earbud at a time while the other remains turned off, thus saving battery. This can be configured through the Jabra Sound+ app.

Second is the Jabra MySound. In collaboration with their sister company GN Hearing (producer of quality hearing-aids), the feature will create a personal hearing profile for the user. Users will take a test on the app comprising of a series of beeps. This will then calibrate the earbuds to determine the users’ unique hearing profile.

Pricing and availability

The Jabra Elite 75t will retail for US$ 199 starting February 2020 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Jabra.com. The six colors will launch at different dates: Navy in February, Copper Black in February (Amazon exclusive), Titanium Black in February (Best Buy exclusive), Grey in March, and both Sienna and Mint coming in April.

FreeBuds Pro 2

Huawei has released its latest TWS Bluetooth earbuds — the FreeBuds Pro 2 — in the Philippines.

The FreeBuds Pro 2 will retail for PhP 9,999 via Huawei’s Shopee and Lazada shops, online stores, authorized retail outlets.

The device will be available in Silver Blue, Ceramic White, and Silver Frost, with an installment payment option.

ANC 2.0: Creating a quiet world

The latest earbuds feature an adaptive active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, along with the original integrated call noise cancellation to enable users to dynamically listen to their preferred music or content.

This intelligent ANC 2.0 takes what noise cancellation is capable of even further, as the FreeBuds Pro 2 can accurately identify and judge the external sound field environment with changes.

For instance, when a user is in the subway, the noise cancellation effects deepen and reduces severe low-frequency noise. In contrast, when in coffee shops, the ANC intelligently adapts. In any case, the earbuds keep users immersed to whatever they’re listening to.

On top of this innovative technology, the FreeBuds Pro 2 has up to 30 hours of playback time, thanks to its 580mAh charging case. Boosted by its 11mm driver, the earbuds is also rated IP 54 for splash, water, and dust resistance.

It’s never too late to accessorize for your new iPhone 14 Pro. With Apple’s price tags still as high as they are, it’s important to protect your investment for the next few years. Unfortunately, a lot of rugged cases don’t prioritize fashion. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of glitz and protection, look no further than Nomad and its new Ultra Orange lineup.

The new lineup of cases — built specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — are delectably minimalist. The orange polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate can both protect your new phone and dazzle while on the go. Plus, durable TPU bumpers saves your hardware from drops of up to 15 feet.

Meanwhile, dual lanyard slots will add convenience if you need both hands for something else. Also, if you’ve bought into Apple’s wireless charging system, the Nomad case is still compatible with the brand’s MagSafe products.

To complement your phone, the collection also has an Ultra Orange sports band for the 45mm Apple Watch and Watch Ultra. The band is both lightweight and durable to provide comfort and durability throughout the day.

The Nomad Ultra Orange iPhone 14 Pro case will retail for US$ 49.95. Meanwhile, the Ultra Orange Sport Band will retail for US$ 59.95. Both are limited edition and will start shipping in November. Pre-orders will grab an additional percent discount.
